1 What a hope we have! it is strong and sure,
Tho’ the billows roar, it will still endure!
‘Tis the hope that rests, whether shade or shine,
On the Word of god, Rock of truth divine!
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love.
2 Firm this anchor holds in the raging storm,
For the promise pledge will the Lord perform;
He will keep the soul that will trust His care,
Till the voyage shall end in the haven fair. [Refrain]
3 To the Saviour cling! In the tempest shock,
Let your anchor down to the living Rock;
Tides may rise and fall, it will still hold fast,
Till with joy you sing, “safe at home at last!” [Refrain]
